Question S9 AutoSet - how to change pressure & other questions
Hi everyone,,
This is my first time here and I need help.
I live in the Philippines. Sleep clinics are very few here, but anyway, I found one, and I was prescribed a cpap machine.
I ordered and got the s9 resmed autoset from the United States, but it didn't come with the humidifier ( I don't know why?). But it's very humid here anyway, so I don't think I will need to use the humidifier.
My questions are ( pls help...)
1. Do I really need the humidifier?
2. If I don't, where do I attach the hose on the cpap unit? I don't see any place in the device to attach the tube into?
3. My doctors report says " the recording is consistent with severe obstructive sleep apnea that improved with cpap at 12 cm of water.. The patient should use nasal cpap at the above named pressure with appropriate masks and fittings"

Is 12 cm the pressure? How do I set that or is the machine already set for me when I bought it and sent my prescription?

I am getting very confused. Please help anyone...

Thanks

RE: Help with resmed s9 autoset.. Please. I am new here.
Welcome to the forum, Rajmin
Please list your equipment in your profile so we can help you
Reply to your questions
1- Not everyone uses humidifier, for now try without and see how it goes. You can always get one later on
Suppliers #2 and #10 ship internationally http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-CPAP-Supplier-List

2- All explained in the clinical manual, important you read it and get yourself familiar with machine setting and functions such as EPR, Ramp, etc
You can get it via email, scroll down to bottom of the page
http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual
S9 setup video and pictures http://www.apneaboard.com/resmed-s9-cpap-setup

The air outlet where you connect the hose is on the side of the machine

See pages 1 & 2 for the instructions http://www.resmed.com/au/assets/document...ac_eng.pdf

There are two types of hoses, slim line smaller diameter and standard

SlimLine hose ........................... ........... ............... Standard hose
You can select the type of hose you,re using (press the setup menu button), 'SlimLine' for the slimline hose or 'Standard' for the standard hose

3- Yes, 12 cmh2o is the pressure
See the above links 'how to setup your CPAP'

Hi Rajmin,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
As far as the humidifier is concerned, you may find that you don't need it. Some people don't need them.
I use mine year-round.
Before I started using CPAP, I was proned to nosebleeds, the humidifier helped with that, especially in the winter time here where I live.
Of course, YMMV.
Hang in there for more answers to your questions and best of lluck to you with your CPAP therapy.

Thanks so very much to Trish and super sleeper and most esp to zonk.

I still can't find good masks in the Philippines, so I will have to get them from the states again.
The ones being sold here are almost double or more in price.
Actually I am excited to start using the cpap machine... But no mask yet...
I sleep about 8 hours a day, but I wake up very tired. I really need to use this.

Again thanks very much for all the advise,
